It seems that every browser tracks user. After all they are free. What browser to choose then?
.Firefox, built for“privacy and security” https://github.com/amq/firefox-debloat
Actually collects data after you hit all “opt-outs” in the settings. Checked about:config settings and there were more.
Firefox even creates cookies.sqlite again after you deleted everything (or at least you thought so)
Opera preferences file contains exceptions for something like “facebook” and“double click”. I’m not sure if this can be changed. But Opera is not that bad.
Pale moon is not fully independent too. Checked about:config settings.
Not even mentioning Chrome here, because it’s a Google’s zone.
I know this sounds paranoid, I’m not really interested in this kind of stuff. Which was of course known. But all this raises concerns!
What’s left for browser that truly just does it’s job?
Chromium? But it was built by google. Can really trust it, doubts.
Nope, I don’t use a credit card (they are tracked), cash or rocks instead. I’ve gone back to pen and parchment paper (For important stuff I use invisible ink). I’ve also got a good cash deal on double layer tinfoil from the local Super Market have managed to wrap the whole house with it, but it get so hot in the Summer But at least I don’t get scam phone calls on my iPhone any more
Ever since Firefox teamed up with Google, I have lost a lot of confidence in Firefox. I use it, after scouring about:config and blocking all Google links in the hosts files, but I no longer mention my age.lol!
You have an iPhone :o . Hopefully you keep it off so it can’t track you! Or better still, you’ve figured out a way to
remove the battery without leaving a fingerprint? Obviously the only safe way to contact others is by pigeon courier,
but make sure you use the entire works of Shakespeare as the encryption key!
Chromium is at least open-source. It’s my choice of browser for this reason. It’s also better IMO because Chrome is basically Chromium with branding, auto-updates and extra codecs injected into it. I trust the former Chromium version to Chrome for many reasons. I also find it’s extension store and ability to sync bookmarks and settings to be very handy and convenient.
